Date: May 12, 2020 - May 13, 2020
Location: Santa Clara (CA), USA
Venue: Applied Materials, Applied Global University (AGU)
Type: Technical Working Group
Further information:

Unfortunately, the current situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) forces us to CANCEL the TWG Semi meeting #18 scheduled for May 2020.

AMAT, who would have hosted the TWG meeting again, has implemented restrictions related to meeting sizes and external visitors. Coupled with new travel restrictions to the US and the overall climate of uncertainty related to potential health risk which could persist for at least the next several weeks, it has been decided to cancel the meeting at this time.

The related EtherCAT training for TWG Semi attendees on May 11, 2020, at Beckhoff, San Jose, CA, is also going to be CANCELLED.

It’s important to remember that cancellation of the meeting does not mean that work within the TWG is suspended. While the in-person meetings are a time of focused work and progress, the intent is for TWG activities to take place continually, which includes between the meetings. We encourage all task groups to continue to make progress as needed and not wait until the next meeting regarding any content updates, decisions, or releases that need to be made. None of the TWG functions, including spec releases, require in-person meetings to make progress.

Please note the fall meeting details have already been set for Wed 14 & Thu 15 October 2020, taking place at Lam Research Corporation. An invitation will be sent out in due time.
